Essex, UK


My name is Vicki Ruta, I am from the UK. I am also known as The Craftacular Creator on YouTube. I love to make cards so much so that my husband and I have started our own small business, Craftacular Creations, to sell them. 

By day, I am a Teaching Assistant/Superhero, by evening I am a wife and crafter. I have been paper crafting for around 12 years and cross stitching for a few more.  

However, it is really since 2020 with a bit more time on my hands than I was expecting, when my cardmaking really took off. I discovered Lawn Fawn and Kindred Stamps pretty much simultaneously and they are my go-to companies for supplies. I am also quite well known for my slight obsession with all things Wonderland (that’s the Alice variety…not Winter!)  

My crafty inspiration comes from many YouTube Crafters, there are too many to name! Also, for something a little different, I am a huge fan of Craft Roulette where the spin of a wheel leads to the most random of projects which I love to create.
